Make Me Beautiful

Like most women I love beauty products, but haven't blog much about it. So this will be my post on beauty products I recently tried out and will give you a short review. I had previous blogged about my love for Sephora. I bought a new lip stick called Buxom Big & Healthy Lip Stick by Bare Escentuals, is an all in one lip liner, lip stick and plumper. The product claims are you don't have to use multiple lip products to get that perfect pout, it is currently exclusively available at Sephora, "it defines the shape of lips like a liner, fills them in with creamy velvet color, and then plumps them to their full buxom potential. It's a three-in-one lipstick that's quick and convenient for defined, colorful, buxom lips anytime, anywhere." I was excited to try this new product as I always have issues finding the right lipstick that works for me and last through out the day. I bought the color Brooklyn, which is fig, pinkish brown color. My verdict is I liked the fact that I didn't need to use a lip liner and lip stick separately, it come in a nice slick tube that self sharpens. The price is $18, which I think is reasonable since you are getting like 3 products in 1. The plumping part of this lip stick is not as noticeable except for the tingling feeling you get when you apply it. Overall I liked this lipstick as it is easy to apply and does last for a long time. My only dislike is that it does feel a bit dry after awhile, but I solved that problem by adding a bit of gloss to accentuate the color and consistency. So in my opinion try it, go sample it at Sephora, if you buy it and really hate it they will take it back no questions asked.


My second beauty product is nail polish. I usually buy and use O.P.I because in my opinion and experience they last the longest and have great colors every season. Recently I was at Rite Aid and noticed a special promotion on Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear, buy 1 get 1 free. I couldn't pass that deal up, and got two color from the new fall collection. I bought 2 dark colors that I think will work great for fall, Purple Potion and Gunmetal. I tend to use dark colors year round and lately have been wanting to try dark purples and grays. My verdict is they work great!. I went to the nail salon about 7 days ago and took my 2 new polishes with me. I used the purple on my toes and the gray on my hands. The polish has lasted all week long with no chips or cracks. It looks good after several days of washing dishes and cleaning. I think for the money ($2.99 a bottle) they do a great job. You can try several colors at that price point with out spending a fortune and not feel guilty. Try it and see for your self, but I am convinced and think I found a new favorite.

My third and last product is perfume, because we all love to smell pretty! I received Vera Wang's Princess for Christmas from my best friend 2 years ago and loved it. When I saw Vera had a new Princess fragrance released April 2009,I had to try it. I first tried Rock Princess at Macy's and liked the scent, but didn't like the $70 price. Sadly I had to pass on the new scent and cool bottle. On one of my many shopping excursion to Marshall's I hit the jack pot! I could not believe they had the beautiful Vera Wang Rock Princess for only $39.99. I couldn't resist and bought it. Only after a few months of being released it was available at the discount retailers, which goes to show you that you can always find it cheaper some where. I love the subtle scent, which is not over powering and lingers all day. My verdict is I love the scent and love the bottle. Go test it out at a department store and Sephora,then go buy it at Marshall's.

Hope you enjoyed my review of these new beauty products, go out and try them for your self and let me what you think. Please leave me comments,I love to read what you have to say. Your comments help me learn and improve my blog.

  1. There is something about that clean dial, and rolex replica sale case that is intimidating, powerful, professional. It's hardly surprising that Rolex is a household name even among families that could only dream of owning one. Such is the brand's global hublot replica uk that you'd be forgiven for thinking that it was the only luxury watch out there many people can't think of another brand off the top of their fake rolex sale. But, as any horological fan would know, there are many, many more fish in the replica watches sea. Just as a well-known status symbol can be used to intimidate, knowledge that takes you beyond the man shaking your hand can work to your replica watches. Without doubt, a Rolex watch conveys excellent taste, but can you boast the exclusivity that comes with rolex replica sale.
